Membership

Thank you for visiting the IOTA Website. IOTA is a membership-based organization that works to build the capacity of its members through education, research and communication. The IOTA acts as a public advocate for Occupational Therapy to promote viability of the profession and access to services.

If you are an Occupational Therapist, Occupational Therapy Assistant or Student in an Occupational Therapy or Occupational Therapy Assistant program, we welcome you to not just join your state organization, but to become engaged in the networking, professional development, and advocacy that is occurring.

The IOTA members have added a retired membership category.  Practitioners that are 55 years or old and no longer practicing in occupational therapy can join for $15 annual fee.  Please tell your retired colleagues and encourage them to support IOTA.

There are many benefits for being a member of your state profession. 

Your IOTA membership assists in these efforts:

  • Allows IOTA to provide continuing education. Members receive a discount at IOTAs continuing education conference, have free access to district    meetings, and free access practice focused courses throughout the state;

  • Encourages research (e.g., Poster presentations) and practices grounded in research to promote the profession;
  • Facilitates communication within the state. Members receive newsletters, membership directory, have access membership-only sections of the website, and can network within districts and practice areas;
  • Supports lobbying efforts to protect association and consumers; promote the profession; and
  • Able to request scholarship assistance for academic studies, postgraduate work or professional level courses (not to be used for continuing education).
